LUNAFEST is just a week away, and we can’t wait!
This film festival is a compilation of nine short films by women, for women, about women to benefit Bucks County Women’s Initiative and the Breast Cancer Fund. The films cover topics ranging from motherhood to breaking barriers, expressed through film styles from animation to drama. Check out the trailer:
These films explore what it means to be a woman. Some of the stories will make you laugh and some will melt your heart. Some of these films may even make you cringe.
Short films are not subject to ratings like feature films. You should know that while they are not rated, one of the LUNAFEST films (“Tits”) has some imagery that may not be suitable for all viewers. Yet it carries an important message about women and their bodies; about how they are viewed and how they view themselves. We think the importance of this short film (less than 5 minutes) outweighs any content issues – but that’s a decision everyone needs to make for themselves.
That’s the beauty of art, of film, and of sharing perspectives. Viewing someone else’s creation gives us a chance to reflect: Why do I love that? Why does that bother me? How are we the same? How are we different? What would it be like if I were in her shoes?
